|DCamp: Multi-Intelligent User Experience - Benay Dara-Abrams|
An interactive session at the DCamp unconference, May 12, 2006, in Palo Alto, California. Howard Gardner proposed the Theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983 - that humans process information through multiple intelligences rather than through one unitary intelligence. At this point, Gardner delineates eight intelligences: * Linguistic * Logical-Mathematical * Spatial * Intrapersonal * Interpersonal * Musical * Bodily-Kinesthetic * Naturalist Currently most user experiences rely heavily on the u...

|ERIC ED379662: Writing and the Seven Intelligences. - ERIC|
In "Frames of Mind," Howard Gardner replaces the standard view of intelligence with the idea that human beings have several distinct intelligences. Using an elaborate set of criteria, including evidence from studies of brain damage, prodigies, developmental patterns, cross-cultural comparisons, and various kinds of tests, Gardner identifies seven intelligences. Even though it was first published in 1983, Gardner's theory has not made an impact on the teaching of writing...

|ERIC ED349812: Application in Multiple Intelligences: Research in Alternative Assessment. - ERIC|
This paper introduces a theoretical treatment of the concept of intelligence that provides for intellectual diversity and contrasts this view with the more traditional notion of intelligence. Next, the paper draws from this theory several implications for education, paying particular attention to the question of assessment. It is shown why this view of intelligence forces the rethinking of some of the fundamental assumptions held about the assessment of learning...

|ERIC ED378523: Multiple Intelligences in the Schools. - ERIC|
Within the context of school improvement and school reform, it is important to examine Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences (MI theory). His work has far-reaching implications for curriculum development and classroom implementation. Gardner believes that the culture defines intelligence too narrowly. He sought to broaden the scope of human potential beyond the confines of the ability to answer items on tests of intelligence and an IQ score...

|ERIC ED351124: Arts Education for Young Children of the 21st Century. - ERIC|
This paper discusses the role of art in the education of young children, particularly in Australia. The first section reviews H. Gardner's theory (1983) that children need to be provided with opportunities to develop multiple forms of intelligence, one of which is intelligence relating to art. The value of play in children's education as put forward by various researchers, notably E. W. Eisner (1990) is also stressed...

|ERIC ED311501: Mime as a Mode of Intelligence. - ERIC|
The dramatic art of mime can be viewed through a theory of multiple intelligences. Mime is a mode of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence which is characterized as the ability to integrate body movement and to use the body in highly differentiated and skilled ways, for expression as well as directed goals. Mime is the language of the body, the silent component of an otherwise spoken language--strong enough with its own symbolic system so that words are not needed...

Howard Gardner's multiple intelligence (MI) theory is an alternative to the unitary concept of general intelligence, but it lacks a practical, reliable, and valid method of assessment. The Hillside Assessment of Perceived Intelligences (HAPI) is an attempt to measure the seven constructs of MI theory with an objective, psychometrically sound instrument. Previous investigations have shown that the HAPI provides a reliable profile, but it has not been clear how much validity this profile holds...
